One viewer wrote: 'Catching up on Gogglebox & my mind is blown...that there's twins all this time I thought it was the same girl with different makeup!' 

While another said: 'Catching up on Gogglebox and there are TWO girls in the Michaels family.... no wonder she looked so different sometimes. Mind f****n blown' 

A third posted: 'Mind blown. There are 2 sisters on the Michaels sofa. What. But. How. When? #gogglebox #sisters' 

Another added: 'The Michael family have two daughters? They're identical. They could have been alternating them throughout the show just for fun #Gogglebox'

And the sisters certainly had an admirer in one viewer who wrote: 'Watching Gogglebox back. The Michael sisters in the same room together' followed by two smitten emojis.

However, it's not the first time a sister of one of the regular Gogglebox stars has stolen the show.

Earlier this year fan favourite Scarlett Moffatt, 25, was upstaged by her younger sister in a rare appearance.

The star met her match in her nine-year-old sister Ava, who outwitted her in an almighty fashion as she poked fun at her lack of nutritional knowledge, much to the nation's amusement.

The radio host told her family that she didn't know the 'no added sugar' label on food and drinks packaging did not actually mean the item contains no sugar at all.

'Just recently, I genuinely thought that 'no added sugar' meant that there was like not a lot of sugar in it at all,' Scarlett explained.

Man down: However, the girls' brother Louis was missing, leaving the family one short of a full line-up

Ava allowed her parents a break from their defeated sighs and eye rolls by delivering the perfect response.

Proving she's wise beyond her years, she said: 'Scarlett, I'm a nine year old and even I know that and you're 25.'

Understandably, the TV star-turned-author couldn't think of a sassier comeback and was forced to accept defeat.
